Parish Life

Like all Catholic parishes, the heart of St. Cecilia's is the Eucharist, but the parish family is the body that makes it a unique and vibrant Faith Community with an exciting parish life. Our parish offers a variety of ways to be part of that communal family in addition to the celebration of the sacraments.

Faith formation is a vital element of the Catholic life as we grow in knowledge and understanding of our faith in Jesus Christ and the Church he gave us. A deeper understanding can lead to a more intimate relationship with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and through the Trinity to the Church and our family, friends, neighbors, parish, and community. Such faith formation is not just for children, but for all of us as we grow as Catholics. Our parish has many opportunities for faith formation that we encourage you to explore.

Another way to participate in our parish life is through the various parish ministries, including liturgical ministries, such as choir member, lector, altar server, and Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist; social justice ministries, such as visiting the homebound, serving the poor, volunteering at food pantries and the St. Vincent de Paul Society; and others, such as youth ministry, to name just a few. God calls us to use our gifts and talents to glorify Him and make life better for other people. Please prayerfully consider these opportunities for getting involved in ministry. And if you have an idea for a new parish ministry, please contact us.

Finally, the parish has a variety of ways to just keep in touch with your friends in the community.  Coffee Hours after the 9:00 am and 11:00am masses on Sunday, monthly social events during the year and special spiritual and educational opportunities add to the richness of life at St. Cecilia's.

Our parish has a rich history in our town, being founded by people who trusted in the Lord and gathered together under the leadership of the Archbishop of Boston. Who we are today is based on the who we were yesterday. Find out more about our spiritual forefathers as you read the history of our parish.

We hope you'll also enjoy viewing photos of our parish, including some of the many enjoyable events and programs we've had over the years.
